G.SKILL Trident Z Royal DDR4-3200 16GB Memory Kit Review
     Tue, Jan 08 2019 | 4:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"G.SKILL was one of the first companies to come out with RGB DDR4 modules and they were quite a hit. Their Trident Z RGB kits are still some of the best RGB kits available today and have a sleek and sexy look that you can’t help but admire. How could G.SKILL possibly top their Trident Z RGB kits? Well they showed everyone just how they were going to do that at Computex this year with the introduction of the Trident Z Royal DDR4 memory. This new memory features the same heatspreader design, but the heatspreaders are made of polished aluminum that just looks amazing. Topping off the heatspreaders is a crystalline light bar that is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. Today we are checking out the F4-3200C16D-16GTRS kit which is a 16GB (2 x 8GB) kit running at 3200 MHz, with timings of 16-18-18-38 at 1.35v. Is this going to be the must-have RGB memory for 2018? Read on as we find out!"

Silicon Power Secure G50 USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Tue, Nov 27 2018 | 5:07P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The new Secure G50 USB Flash Drive series from Silicon Power offers an additional layer of protection against data theft by utilizing AES 256-bit hardware-based full-disk encryption in XTS mode and the SP Locker application is the point of interaction for unlocking the sensitive data partition. The drive will re-lock as soon as it has been unmounted and if there have been multiple attempts to guess the password (or brute-force), the drive contents will be erased in order to avoid data leakage."
